Copro Gallery celebrates the holidays with with “Naughty Or Nice,” a group exhibition exploring the darker meanings of St Nick’s nocturnal spying, his secret list, and its voyeuristic delight in hidden pleasures, pains, and — the punishmentsthey bring. Saint Nick’s darker, punitive side,  the KRAMPUS, will not only grace gallery walls, but manifest in hot-blooded, bestial form, brandishing switches and and herding gallery patrons outdoors into his infernal habitat. There, amid a smoldering jumble of cages, bones, and screaming children, the Krampus shambles through the inscrutable tasks of eternal perdition, rattling chains, snarling, and otherwise presenting himself  at his most hellishly photogenic.
Indoors the perils and delights of the season will be represented in a stellar exhibition of artwork curated by Albert Cuellar and Copro Gallery.

Staging the outdoor Krampus tableau in elaborate hand-crafted suits and masks are members of  KRAMPUS L.A., the first and only Krampus troupe in the Western United States.  Many of the troupe’s members were involved in the costumed buffoonery and public spectacles perpetrated  by the CACOPHONY SOCIETY.  Among the Society’s more transgressive and theatrical productions were the scenes of horror depicted in their occasional Halloween house of horrors, “The Museum of Mental Decay.  Photos and artifacts from the “Museum” are featured below:

Copro Gallery celebrates its 20th anniversary. Hatched from a friendship of Douglas Nason and Greg Escalante, that began when Doug bought a Robert Williams seriagraph from Greg that he published in 1989, Copro Nason Fine Art Publishing was formed in 1993. Publishing several serigraphs with Robert Williams, Big Daddy Roth, Sandow Birk, Russell Crotty and many other luminaries during the 1990’s and curating several group shows, Greg Escalante, Douglas Nason and occasionally Gary Pressman collaborated with many artists during the beginnings of the Lowbrow / Pop Surreal movement. Greg Escalante's art juggernaut led him to co-found Juxtapoz Magazine as well as sit on the board of several local art museums during this time and working with Doug Nason curated many important museum exhibitions as well as gallery shows. Copro/Nason didn’t have a permanent venue until December1999 when Copro/Nason Fine Art Gallery opened in Culver City with an exhibition called the “Leeteg Tribute”. Followed by “The Art of Robert Williams” in March 2000, Mark Ryden Illustration show, Night of the Tiki with Shag and solo and group shows with artists such as Liz Mcgrath, Keith Weesner, Coop, Kozik, Rockin’ Jelly Bean, Sandow Birk, David Choe, Brian Viveros, Van Arno the gallery continued to grow.
Gary Pressman started as Gallery Director at Copro/Nason gallery, Culver City 2002 and began curating feature and group shows with artists such as Isabel Samaras, Ausgang, Sas Christian, Chris Mars, Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, Esao Andrews, Glenn Barr, Shag, Tim Biskup, Kenny Scharf, John John Jesse, Joe Vaux, Ray Caesar, Luke Chueh, Alex Gross, Joe Ledbetter, Naoto Hattori, Jeff Gillette, Brian Viveros, and several others.  
In the interest of expanding, June 2005 saw Copro/Nason’s “Bergamot Invasion group show” christening Copro into a new space in Santa Monica at Bergamot Station. Some of the early exhibitons at Bergamot Station up to 2008, when Douglas Nason left the gallery were Ron English/Daniel Johnston, BLAB, Cannibal Flower, Chet Zar, Dan Quintana, Audrey Kawasaki, Lori Earley, Amy Sol, Luke Chueh, Kris Lewis, Kukula, becca, Yosuke Ueno, Lola, Travis Louie. From these formative years Copro grew into a serious art gallery and continues to hunt for new artists and break new ground. 20 years from inception to Copro Gallery 2013 we're still here with the same mission.
Copro Gallery 20th anniversary will feature many artists dating back to the beginning as well as current artists that are exhibiting at Copro today!
